MOSCOW – A Moscow court on Tuesday ordered Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny to more than 2 1/2 years in prison on charges that he violated the terms of his probation while he was recuperating in Germany from nerve-agent poisoning.
Earlier, Navalny attributed his arrest to Putin’s “Fear and hatred,” saying the Russian leader will go down in history as a “Poisoner.”
Navalny and his lawyers have argued that while he was recovering in Germany from the poisoning, he couldn’t register with Russian authorities in person as required by his probation.
